Not anywhere near as bad I as thought it would be. It keeps moving and is edited all quick and over-surveilling like. It also gets most of it credibility from Gene Hackman playing his character from the Conversation (it also lifts one of the scenes). Interestingly all the NSA hacks are played by young comedians; Jack Black & Seth Green. The final mexican standoff is not as implausible as I expected, the movie had just enough smarts to keep me watching throughout. No more then that however.
